WF vs NK Match Prediction & Analysis

We are down to the back-end of the Plunkett Shield and things are pretty much looking decided now. Canterbury Kings will finish at the top of the ladder and the Firebirds will do well to avoid the wooden spoon. The upcoming contest, which is to be played between Wellington Firebirds and Northern Knights at the Basin Reserve in Wellington on 27th March 2021.

Team Previews

Wellington Firebirds

Just when Wellington Firebirds would have been brimming with confidence, after winning the title in the shortest version of the game, they failed to make inroads in the longest version of the game. They suffered a string of unfavorable results and are now languishing at the bottom of the points table. They haven't won any match yet and could find it difficult in the upcoming match as well.

Going into the upcoming match, a lot will rely on how their batsmen approach the game. They have so far played more as they do in the shortest format of the game and that has been the prime reason for the Firebirds' poor run of form. Besides, Wellington Firebirds have a rather inexperienced bowling attack, and picking up twenty wickets could prove to be challenging for them. If the likes of Tom Blundell, Michael Bracewell, and Rachin Ravindra are able to play to their potential and the others contribute well, Wellington Firebirds could be force to deal with.

Northern Knights

Northern Knights had a terrific Super Smash and they are enjoying a similar kind of run in this tournament as well. Although they can no longer finish at the top of the ladder, they are prime candidates of being the second-best and a win in this upcoming encounter should seal the second spot for them. Up until now, the Knights have played six matches, winning two and losing two out of those. They have 51 points to their name, but with Auckland Aces and Central Stags breathing right down their neck, anything less than a win would probably not work for them.

With New Zealand hosting Bangladesh, Northern Knights will be without a couple of their top-performing players. Having said that, they still have a decent side on paper with an excellent amalgamation of youth and experience. Ben Watling, Neil Wagner, Jeet Raval, and Joe Carter have loads of experience behind them, which should play a massive role in this match. The Knights have a balanced unit with firepower available in all three departments of the game. Even if only a few of their players fire, boxing Northern Knights is going to be extremely difficult.

WF vs NK Betting Tips

It may not be an important match from the tournament's point of view but is as important as any for the two sides. Wellington will want to register a win here to avoid finishing at the bottom spot whereas Northern Knights will want to maintain their second spot on the ladder. Comparing the two sides on the basis of team combination and performance in the competition, the Knights are ahead by a big margin and are, therefore, our pick as favorites to emerge on top in the upcoming match.
